Hmmm

Having just finished The New Revelations by Neale Donald Walsch in which he tackles the hypocrisy of the world's major religions head on I find myself wondering yet again about the fascination many clerics have with the minutiae of the various scriptures floating around the world as opposed to the underlying meaning of the books and the commonality they so clearly build on ....

or put it another way ....

would an all powerful force, responsible for the creation of something so wonderful as the world we all inhabit and concerned with truth, happiness and love have anything at all to do with the divisive, exclusive, misogynist, male dominated, psychologically naive views of the major religions currently on offer to the world?
